Guess this requires no introduction…the first trailer for The Emoji Movie (formerly known as Emojimovie: Express Yourself) has landed. Watch the mobile-optimised and widescreen versions below, as well as an extended version screening in theatres this week over on iTunes.
Hidden within the messaging app is Textopolis, a bustling city where all your favorite emojis live, hoping to be selected by the phone’s user. In this world, each emoji has only one facial expression – except for Gene, an exuberant emoji who was born without a filter and is bursting with multiple expressions. Determined to become “normal” like the other emojis, Gene enlists the help of his handy best friend Hi-5 and the notorious code breaker emoji Jailbreak . Together, they embark on an epic “app-venture” through the apps on the phone, each its own wild and fun world, to find the Code that will fix Gene. But when a greater danger threatens the phone, the fate of all emojis depends on these three unlikely friends who must save their world before it’s deleted forever.
Starring T.J Miller, Ilana Glazer and James Corden, The Emoji Movie is released August 4, 2017 in the U.S. and Friday October 13, in the UK.
